For the last 3 months I have been shopping for diamond earrings for our 10th anniversary.

When I started I didn’t really know what I wanted. I feel in the last few months I have become an armchair economist in diamonds :). All thanks to Pricescope.

I was also fortunate that I had a friend who worked at one of world’s largest sightholder. That allowed me to see a large range of diamonds in person - different colors, clarities, sizes etc.

In the end I decided to go with I/ VS and size somewhere between 2 to 2.5 carats.

Finally got I / VS2/ 4.41 ctw pair from David S Diamonds in NY. Highly suggest you check him out. One of the only two stores I found in NY that goes about selecting diamonds in a way that PS users would.

Sorry don’t have great shots but here is one. I have it to my wife today and she loved it. It was so worth it.

Great job!! So happy your wife is thrilled, and this is reaffirming my belief that it is really hard to ever go too big when it comes to studs! Those look absolutely perfect on her. And second the request for more ear shots!

Thanks everyone. I will try and take some more pics.

I am actually glad I stuck with 2.2. At one point I was looking at 2.5 ct each and given it was around holidays, supply was limited and didn’t love anything. So ended up going with 2.2. As I look At these in my wife’s ear, I am glad I didn’t buy anything bigger.

No more ear shots but did manage to take some more pics of just the studs.

I feel with macro images, I am zooming in almost 50x. At that level of zoom I can see inclusions, which is bothering me. Is that normal?

These are on her ears not her hand which get scrutinized much more. You got VS2 and some inclusions will be visible when your magnifying them. All anyone sees is sparkle on the ears. These are amazing and look beautiful
